Goo Goo for Ghillies

Monday, March 30th, 2015

The shoe trend that is dominating Spring fashion and a on the feet of every blogger and member of the fash pack has to be the ghillie lace up. We are going crazy for this feminine style and we are loving it in all forms, stilettos, pointed flats, chunky mids and summer ready sandals.

This flattering style is a great transitional shoe, taking you from your winter ankle boots into your summer sandals.


Wear your Odessa sandals with some tailored, ankle grazer trousers, a logo t-shirt and a long kimono jacket for work or shopping days with the girls.

The chunky mid heel Wild Thing will look great with some acid wash mom jeans and a cropped shirt for casual evenings out and first dates.

For the ultimate stand-out ghillie style, then the Parisian or Popsicle stilettos are your going out wardrobe’s new bestie. Wear yours with a classic LBD or a nice co-ord suit set for weddings and days at the races.



Birkenstock: How to Wear

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

It was a huge trend last summer and its set to be even bigger this year, the classic Birkenstock is a must have sandal for your wardrobe.

This “geekish” style that was once favoured by crazy art teachers and embarrassing dads is now a member of the fashion elite, with celebs, style icons and bloggers going mad for this simple sandal.


Wear the two strap Arizona sandal with some distressed boyfriend jeans, an oversized Oxford shirt and a long cardigan for lunches out and shopping days. The holographic pair look fab with some tanned pins and a summer dress for days in the park.

Pair your one strap Madrid sandal with some skinnies and a logo tee and a leather jacket for work or drinks with friends.

The toe thong Gizeh and heel strap Milano sandals are great for holiday, wear yours with some raw edge denim shorts and a smock cami for walks on the beach.




Winter Sun

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

The snow has finally hit most of the UK and the rest of us are moaning about how cold it is every morning. However there is a lucky few who are escaping the winter weather and jetting off to a tropical destination.

Whether its a paradise island in Thailand, a travelling adventure in Brazil or a party trip to Australia, you need to make sure you are packing all the essentials, which obviously means…the perfect shoes.

For days in the city and wandering around the markets, arm your feet with some lightweight Converse All Star Hi’s or a metallic Lily Loafer which will look great with a tan.



When lounging by the pool or topping up your tan on the beach, it is all about the slider sandal, easy to wear and throw on and off when walking to and from the beach bar. The new Oblix and Orlando sandals will be your holiday bestie and a sunny day wouldn’t be complete without a trusty pair of super comfy Birkenstocks.

For chilled evenings at a nice restaurant then a cute pair of Oceania sandals will look great with your summer dress and brightly coloured toenails.

Style for the Bank Holiday – Rain or Shine

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

With the bank holiday almost here, its time to start planning what to wear for the long weekend as quite a few of us will be packing an overnight holdall and jumping in the car to make the most out of the 3 days off.

Whether it is a city break abroad, a few days at the seaside or some countryside walking, we have selected some of our favourite ladies styles to have you covered, come rain or shine.


When the weather gets a bit unpredictable, which lets face it happens quite a lot in the British Isles, we also need some emergency footwear in our suitcase.

If off to Wales for some country walks amongst the mountains, a pair of New Balance W373 will have you climbing trees and picking raspberries all day.

For the festival goers who are prepping for Reading, Leeds or SW4, a bright pair of Joules wellies are a must for some muddy trekking to the main stage.

City shopping and touristy days out call for a pair of timeless leather Converse All Stars or a chunky ankle boot like the Madison as both look pretty smart, are easy to wear with anything and will help keep your feet dry if there is an unexpected drizzle.



For sunny days sat on Brighton pier with a 99 ice cream, a classic pair of Vans Authentic are great as they come in so many summery colours and help you walk across the pebbly beach without hurting your feet and stay comfy and cool whilst walking through the lanes shopping till you drop.

For those of us who are lucky enough to jet set abroad to the likes of Rome, Paris or Amsterdam, some sandals and some trainers are a must to pop in your hand luggage. Lightweight and comfortable, the new Air Max Thea will have you exploring the city all day and some simple sandals like the Holla  or Hallie are great for lunches at the Louvre or dinner overlooking the Colosseum.









Men’s Leather Sandals – How to Wear

Friday, July 25th, 2014

Commonly seen as a fashion faux-pas the leather sandal has always appeared a bit feminine and uncool but this summer it has had a bit of a style revival.

The leather sandal was the usual footwear choice of our awkward dads in summer and more often than not paired with socks, the dreaded combo. They would crack them out on family holidays to everyone’s horror and since then the closest thing to a sandal a guy would put on his feet is a pair of Havaianas.

Recently men aren’t as afraid of a sandal, realising that it is the best way to stay cool in the summer and can be quite easy to style up or down.


The woven Nero slip on is a great smart choice sandal to match with some cotton twill chino shorts and shirt for those summer evening events.

For the guy who doesn’t want to be too adventurous, the Crixus sandal is a classic flip flop but with premium leather uppers and sole and is easy to wear with anything.

The trend-setters favourite is the slider or footbed like the Birkenstock Arizona 2 Strap or OFFICE Thong sandal. Dress down with jeans, a vest and a loose fitted plaid shirt or smarten up with some chinos and t-shirt.

Footbed Fever

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Once considered pretty unattractive and uncool, the geeky footbed sandal was once the ultimate in librarian chic but lately has become a fashion followers favourite.

This minimal and unbelievably comfortable sandal is not only easy to wear but  its chunky shape elongates your pins. Pair some black Hype sandals with a tight wrap over mini skirt and light knit jumper or some steel grey Birkenstock Madrid 1 Bar Mule‘s with some pale wash skinny jeans and a nude boyfriend t-shirt.



Its not often we are kind to our feet, often favouring some skyscraper heels to match our new outfit, but who knew you could be perfectly stylish and comfortable all at once. With the likes of Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and Chloe showcasing them on the catwalk, footbed sandals and sliders are simple, easy to wear and definitely a wardrobe must have this season.

If you’re not thrilled by the Leeds and Reading line-ups, you’ve ‘done’ Bestival and you can’t get hold of Glasto tickets, why not swap your wellies for sandals and branch out and try one of the festivals which take place across Europe each summer?

We take a look at some of the hottest festivals on the continent taking place over the coming months.


Benicassim – July 17-20

Combine the festival experience with a beach holiday at Benicassim on the Spanish Costa del Azahar. There’ll be sun, sea, sand and some of our favourite artists including Lily Allen, Kasabian, Paul Weller, Tinie Tempah, Jake Bugg, Ellie Goulding AND the Manic Street Preachers.

FOR in Croatia – June 19-20

If you hate having to pick and choose between which act to watch the FOR In Croatia is the festival for you. None of the performances clash with one another, saving you from making some tricky decisions. There are also plenty of gaps in the schedule so you can enjoy the local beaches. This year’s line-up includes Klaxons, Mark Ronson, Factory Floor, Haim and Erol Alkan.

Primavera in Barcelona – May 29-31

Also hitting Spain this summer is Primavera, a must-play festival for any act that wants to be seen as successful. This year’s stellar line-up includes Queens of the Stone Age, Arcade Fire, The Pixies, Disclosure, Slowdive, Haim and Sky Ferreira.

 Optimus Primavera Sound Music Festival - Porto

Szignet in Budapest – August 11-18

If you like your festivals big, then Szignet is the one for you. With stages spread over 50 venues and more than 200 performances across the weekend, it’s no wonder the event attracts almost 400,000 people from across the globe each year. This year the acts not to miss include Bastille and Calvin Harris.

Iceland Airwaves  – November 5-9

Who says festivals are just for the summer? You’ll have to wait until November to jet off to Reykjavik to enjoy Iceland Airwaves, but we promise it will be worth it. Spend your days in the hot springs before dancing away to performances by the likes of the Flaming Lips and East India Youth in the evenings.
